Europe's Parliament has approved the controversial Copyright Directive, which includes Article 11, the "link tax" and Article 13, known a the "upload filter."

This means it'll become law within 24-months in each European Union member state.

Things are going to change with this new law, and it'll be interesting to see how this is interpreted, and how changes what we now know. Users and big businesses will have to make significant changes if they are not to fall foul.
